According to O’Malley, on the appointed date he is going to fight for the title, regardless of whether Sterling appears in the octagon or not.

He will fight in the main event for the championship belt. With or without Aljo. Here’s how things are. Let’s see how things turn out. We still have a lot of time, and there will be big fights until August.”

Speaking of big fights, O’Malley may be referring to the fight between Corey Sandhagen and Umar Nurmagomedov, which is expected to be announced soon.
